Umm, the US did not bomb the Saudis or Egypt. so much for that argument. If the bombers had been from the UK, would the US have bombed them? is as appropriate and relevant a question. Last time a government sanctioned attacking the US, they got bombed. Japan and Germany are good examples. that Al Queda was not directly a nation-state certainly provided difficulties in responding, but it did not prevent a response.
the US did what it said it was going to do the first day out. The US went after what the US perceived to be the perpetrators of the crime, namely Al Queda, primarily because they said they did it and the evidence supported their comntention. And as a result Al Queda as a STRATEGIC force harmful to the US was all but eliminated. that doesn't mean they can't send out developmentally disabled people, children, and zealots as suicide bombers to blow up busses full of school children, but they have been unable to inflict major damage on US soil for over a decade, fortunately.
If it was Israelis (not Saudis & 1 Egyptian) behind 9/11, would USA have bombed them?
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt
Because you obviously dont have a clue, your title states 18 Saudi's and 1 Egyptian, this is WRONG, there were 15 Saudi's 2 from the UAE, one from Lebanon and finally one from Egypt.
So you have demonstrated in this thread so far that you dont even know even the most basic details about the 19 hijackers yet you start a thread speculating as to what it would be like if it was Israeli hijackers.
With US handing out loads of money to Israel with seemingly no end in sight, wonder what would happen if evidence eventually comes to light showing Israel behind that sad massacre now over a decade ago.. would US bother to address it, or just let it go(what would that then mean?) Well, apparently there's all the proof in the world available to CSI but that isn't the topic at hand:
I'm asking: WOULD IT MATTER ANYWAYS??
And the evidence suggests, no way, since USA bombed Afghanistan & Iraq -and then other countries - but NOT Saudi Arabia and NOT Egypt.. now doesn't that say it all?
Video from about year ago, Obama gave Israel $70billion more in one shot and apparently in live coverage even himself thought it was only 70 million not 70 billion *facepalm* of course thats already old news; who know how much israel has been awarded since them for its ongoing campaigns =/
Well we know that Israel attacked the USS Liberty and did nothing about it. Granted wasn't to the scale of 9/11 but what level is unacceptable?
reply to post by gardener
Does it really justify attacking Afghanistan just because these saudi Arabian terrorists trained in Afghanistan?
No it doesn't.
Nothing the US did after 911 is justified by their actions. The US attacked purely based on geopolitical strategies that were in Americas best interests.
